Bombay Bicycle Club, the unexpected break-out band who have took the UK by storm this year, have announced plans for the US release of their acclaimed debut album I Had The Blues But I Shook Them Loose. The album will be released in the States on July 27th via Portland-based label Arena Rock Recording Company. This US release will finally give American music fans an opportunity discover what critics and fans in the UK have been touting as one of the most exciting new bands for the past year (sold out Alexandra Palace which has a 10k+ capacity), even awarding Bombay Bicycle Club the crown of “Best New Band” at the 2010 NME Awards, beating out The xx, La Roux, The Big Pink, and Mumford and Sons.
Touring in support of A Different Kind of Fix – out now on Octone – which has gotten amazing press from the likes of NPR, Paste, NYLON, Pitchfork, Filter and more. Album was produced by Ben Allen – who also worked recently with Animal Collective, Washed Out, and Deerhunter.
